I am a fan of both kinds of powder, mainly used on the inner thighs and under the boobs. Except I stopped buying the real Gold Bond brand years ago, because that shit's expensive. Dollar Tree's Assured brand is pretty much the same thing, for, you guessed it, $1. I like that cool refreshing feeling. But if I'm going out and I don't want to smell like an old person, then I use baby powder... Johnson & Johnson's pure cornstarch, the lavender & chamomile kind. If I've just shaved the bikini area, then instead of powdering, I moisturize, with Aveeno lavender & vanilla baby lotion.
Oh, and Jibberjam is right about the blue Gold Bond, which is labeled for feet. I bought that once because they were out of the regular gold kind, figuring eh it's the same thing except with peppermint oil added... and that is true... but there's something about that peppermint oil that didn't agree with me... I forget exactly what now, maybe a rash, but anyway something made me stop using it. I still have that stuff... I should try it again and see what the problem was, or if it even happens again. And maybe I should put some in my sneakers, to see if that peppermint helps funky sneaker smell.
I had some kind of reaction to that Anti-Monkey Butt powder too... itchiness or rash I think. I still have that stuff too... maybe I should give it another try.
Side note: When we remodeled our bathroom years ago, I deliberately picked WHITE baseboards and door & window frames, because of the powder factor. That shit gets everywhere, and I'm not a big fan of constant dusting. :P
